By Space Coast Daily // June 29, 2018
If you observe shared hosting is not sufficient now to hold the growing demands of your site, you should start looking for a robust hosting option.
There is no dearth of hosting providers that come with alternate hosting solutions to serve high-traffic and heavy database sites. One such hosting solution is the Hostinger’s business hosting. The company says their business hosting blends the power of cloud computing and ease of shared hosting.
In today’s post, I will be reviewing their business hosting plans so that you can better decide whether or not you should go with it.
Let’s begin this journey with a brief overview of the company.
Hostinger is not a new name in the industry. The company was founded in the year 2004 and today almost after 18 years, it has over 29 million users across 178 countries. Since the foundation the company is on the epic ride. Apart from Hostinger, they have 2 more hosting brands: 000webhost, Hosting24. Also, they have localized their services in over 39 countries.
Now let’s have a look at their business hosting.
Advantages of Using Hostiger’s Business Hosting
Since pricing remains the primary concern for the majority of people, I would like to start this review with their pricing structure first.
Pricing & Features
Hostinger’s business hosting plans come with 3 different pricing models. Perhaps they understand that every user has a different budget and different requirements. Their pricing starts at $15.90/mo and goes up to $71.55/mo. If I compare their pricing with the pricing of some leading providers, I notice, Hostinger is much more affordable. Their every plan is offering 45% discount for the first time users.
Their startup plan has been designed for multiple large-scale websites. This plan offers 40 GB of disk space, 3GB RAM, and 2 CPU Cores. Whereas their Professional plan is suitable for high-end eCommerce sites. Along with everything that is part of the StartUp plan, this plan offers 2 X speed boost and higher configuration (80 GB disk space+6G RAM +4 CPU Cores).
And if I talk about their most premium Enterprise plan, it is suitable to cater to resource-heavy sites and applications. This plan supports 3X speed boost.
Speaking of features, all their plans offer a free domain, free SSL certificate, free cache manager, daily backups, uptime monitoring and dedicated resources that are managed by their support team itself. I will discuss these features in brief in the following section.
See the following snapshot for their complete pricing structure and features.
Performance and Speed Test
Performance and speed are two major factors that determine the usability of any hosting platform. Remember even if premium hosting plan is not capable to provide your site a good speed and performance then what’s the benefits of bearing the high cost.
When I looked for their response time on Bitcatcha tool, I found that the provider actually has a good speed and response time. It showed an A+ performance that is the biggest achievement for any hosting provider. Below I am sharing the snapshot of the result.
When your website starts growing it demands more security along with more resources. If security is your top priority, Hostinger business hosting plans will not disappoint you. There are few essential security features that are included in their every plan. As mentioned above, regardless of the plan you pick, you get a free SSL certificate and dedicated IP.
So that you never face an issue like data loss, automated daily backups are available with their every plan. In order to ensure that you get a secure hosting environment, they have also included CloudFlare protection in their service for absolutely free.
There are only a few providers that are using integrated caching with cache manager. This feature offers the ultra-quick website. Another good thing that will you find about the provider is that where most companies charge a separate top-up- fee for a domain, Hostinger is providing it for a free of cost with annual plans.
Additionally, their business hosting servers run on isolated virtual instances that let you take full control of the resources. The provider also monitors their uptime constantly so that they can quickly resolve situations of an unexpected breakdown.
Easy to Use
Business hosting services offered by Hostinger are exceptionally easy to use even for newbies. If you will take a look at its dashboard, you will find that all the important tools and options such as domains, websites, accounts, files etc. have been arranged perfectly in one place. You need no to go here and there to find these options. Their customized control panel is more user-friendly than a traditional cPanel.
Dedicated Customer Support
Customer support is one of the primary elements of a hosting platform. If it is not reliable, no matter how good the uptime, speed, and performance of a hosting platform are.
Make sure whichever plan you choose, you should not struggle to get customer support. Luckily, Hostinger is quite good in terms of customer support. They offer 24/7 dedicated live chat support option for all their business hosting subscribers.
In addition to this, their knowledge base and blog sections are also there to help you. When I personally tried their live chat support, it got started in less than 1 minute. The representative provided me a quick response to all my queries.
Money Back Guarantee
The provider offers the 30-day money back guarantee with all its plan. Yes, you heard it right. Even you can read it on their website as well. They provide refund instantly without asking a single question. This risk-free trial lets you try their business hosting plans gracefully.
Note-Not all products are refundable, so it is better to check their refund policy.
With Hostinger’s every plan, you get several features. Therefore, you need not pay separate pricing for every feature. If I compare Hostinger with its competitors in terms of response time, customer support and user-friendliness, I find Hostinger has an upper hand.
